Afternoon All,

I no longer have the quality option (I think you had the choice of low, medium and high) + the streaming is not as smooth as what it was (I am getting 18 MBPS down on Telecom Broadband).

 

I get memory issues and have to reboot, the shows start to freeze / crash after you have watched 2 or 3 shows... Has something changed? TVNZ do no reply to emails!!!

 

Thanks, Baggy

The quality option disappeared a while back.

I tried TV3 on demand last night via the browser and the page had warnings that it was an old incompatible browser.

I've just updated my ps3 to the lastest firmware now its unusable. video comes up in corner of screen and can't go full screen. Think this web app might need an update.

I'd give up on it. It's not something they're likely to bother updating much/at all. Try using it via the web browser.

I've never managed to get it working _reliably_.

I think the PS3 web browser needs an update too though.
As above, it was no good for TV3 on demand recently.

I get the feeling the web browser might not be getting the update attention it needs either.

It is amazing how crap this is actually - had to watch something on it yesterday and it proved to be an exercise in frustration - IF they have testers for that app then they should all be lined up and shot because even basic functionality is flawed.
Nice one TVNZ - if it doesn't work properly, it should be removed.

It is working OK for me (Its never been great in terms of quality etc)

No crashing for me, however I am using a older version/firmware

The ondemand plugin for xbmc on ios masquerades as the PS3 browser, and as such is having some issues at the moment too...
